I would like to tell you a story anon.
“An old man saw a scorpion drowning and decided to pull it out from the water. He calmly extended his hand to reach the creature. When he did, the scorpion stung him. With the effect of the pain, the old man let go of the creature and it fell back into the water. The man, realizing that the scorpion was drowning again, got back up and tried to rescue it but then again it stung him. He let go of it again and right after attempted helping it once more.
A young boy standing by, approached the old man and said, “Excuse me Sir, you are going to hurt yourself trying to save the evil-vicious creature, why do you insist? Don’t you realize that each time you try to help the scorpion, it stings you?”
The man replied, “The nature of the scorpion is to sting and mine is to help. My nature will not change in helping the scorpion.”
With that said, I will stand up for justice and truth, regardless of who it is for. What they stand for and their beliefs is between them and God, but that does not change our duty to stand up for what is right. I will speak out against injustice until my last breath because that is the teaching of my Imam Ali (A.S).
ما قيمة هذه الدنيا التي تتعلقون بها ؟ ..
“What is the value of this world that you cling to?
So wild flowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different.

Imam Ali (as)
A ladder was put in front of you so you could escape.
Just like the seasons.
Birthdays will come and go,
Just like the waves at the seashore.
People will come and go,
Just like the birds during migration,
But it’s God who always has, always is, and will always stay,
And there’s no comparison.
